Default XP-SP2 is out...

SP2 is out and I thought I'd add a link to the download site.
Personally, I'd make sure you make a restore point before you install this.

What do you mean backup before installing? This is microsoft!

You know...you'd think with all the thousands of up-tight devs they got in that company, they could pump out a service pack in under 18 months.

The sad thing is, that even with all of the time that they've spent developing SP2, there's already a security problem that's been found. I posted this link in the off-topic forum, but here it is again.

There's a patch for it.

Actually, there's already a patch for the TWO security holes they found.

"This installation package is intended for IT professionals and developers downloading and installing on multiple computers on a network."

If I am correct, a more compact version for "normal" users will be released tomorrow, 25.08.2004.

yeah borg, your right. This was released a while ago for networks and more than one computer. Hense, that is why the size is so large. A smaller version is already out for xp home edition on wu and the one for pro is going to be released on the 28th.

the service pack creates a restore point before installing, unless system restore is turned off.
